Hello, I have two Windows 2003 web servers. I need to migrate all websites from these two servers to a new Windows 2012 server. Is there an easy way to export the site setup information and import to the 2012 server to avoid having to manually setting up all the sites on the 2012 server? I'm thinking there maybe someway, but I'll still need to touch each site to confirm / tweek. Just looking for any migration tools that could help.

Thank You

You can simply export the web site information to XML files. Then do a find replace to update the information with the correct paths, IP addresses etc, then import that information in to the new server.
You will need to copy the content across yourself, but is simple enough to do.

You would be better of with Microsoft Web Deploy Tool to migrate IIS 6.0 to IIS 7 \ 8 \ 8.5
